This subject provides students with an understanding of the critical links between tropical landscapes and livelihoods in a development practice context. The content will provide students with knowledge of the concept of livelihoods and tools used to investigate assess and monitor changes in livelihoods. Students will learn experientially through hands-on experience with a variety of participatory approaches to livelihood studies. Special attention will be given to the different visions and perceptions of livelihoods amongst different people. The concept of landscape and the use of various visualisation techniques will be emphasised. Implications of globalisation for rural livelihoods and ways in which market integration can be mediated to favour livelihoods will be explored. Much of the teaching will be in the workshop mode and there will be opportunities for field excursions to communities in far north Queensland.
